Any suggestions on a wheelset for a CX rider at ~250?
I'm wondering if anyone has any idea on a wheelset to look for for a ~250# rider for his cyclocross bike? I'm not loaded with $$$ but I can spring for the lower scale of stuff, and like just about everyone out there, I like to get the best bang for the buck. I'm ok with and I'm thinking I can get something that has a 32/28 spoke count or something close. What would really make the difference is how well it is put together.
Little bit on my riding style: I seem to be able to ride with a little bit of "gingerness". Even though I do think I stress the wheels and I don't needlessly abuse them.
Thanks for reading this and any and all replies are most welcomed.
